North Hempstead’s Performance Management System ‘TownStat’ Recognized for 6th Consecutive Year
North Hempstead, NY – North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth and TownStat Director Steven Pollack were pleased to receive the Certificate of Distinction Award from the International City/County Management Association (ICMA) for the sixth consecutive year.
The award recognizes the efforts made by North Hempstead’s TownStat to track, report, and act upon performance data and to help promote cost reduction and quality improvement in the Town’s everyday operations.
According to the ICMA, North Hempstead is among eight jurisdictions nationwide to receive the Certificate of Distinction, and one of 53 recognized overall by the ICMA in any category.
The ICMA says performance management aids encourage accountability and transparency in government. In the past two years, the Town has implemented various measures in order to promote an open and transparent government, including live streaming board meetings, making meeting agendas and backup information available prior to meetings on the Town’s website, and creating an OpenGov website portal.
